Thanks guys,

Iv got a little bit done this week, my little girl is sick so iv been on daddy duty 24hrs a day for the last few days. The seams have needed a hell of a lot of work and iv never had to do so much sanding on a model in all my years of modelling, I was covered in dust I was that bad I should of taking a selfie, I looked like a snow man[frown]

Here is a picture of one of the nacelles, check out the hole which I filled with Zap-a-Gap, the others where sorted with melted sprue




I had sanded the upper fuselage join after the glue had set but I just wasnt happy, it had dips along the seam so I used melted sprue the whole way around the fuselage



So after leaving it to dry for a few day I sanded it (turning my self white in process) A few areas needed more filling so I just used some humbrol filler




and after sanding just to be extra sure that the seams where right I went around them with Mr.Surfacer 500




Now Its been cleaned up and I think im happy[biggrin] Iv stared to rescribe so its a process which im not a big fan of so il do it a bit at a time, Il take pictures when the scribing is finished.

Thanks for looking

Eoin

Thanks Gary

I got a bit done last night after the Mrs went to bed, first was to finish off the rescribing.
Some of the lines on either side of the fuselage didn't match up so I filled the with melted sprue on Friday so it was set and ready for sanding last night.



The scribing around the nose was straight forward


Next up was to sort out the wings and wheel wellwell




The hole which was filled with super glue turned out great although in the picture it looks like a hole still, I scribed around the nacelles after all the sanding


When I fit the tail wing the fit was awful so out with the melted sprue again




This version of the liberator had no underside ball turret so I for the plug to cover the hole and yes you guessed it I filled the awful seams with my faithful friend... Melted sprue


Next iv too sort out the dreadful engine cowlings which don't even have the panel lines visible on them unless you strain your eyes to look closely at them, there is also Four ejector pin marks inside them which stop the engines from fitting inside them, ( I really need to buy a drimel )


That's it for now, after I sort out the engines I'm gonna mask up the glass work and get ready for paint.

Thanks for looking,
Eoin

Nice job getting this all cleaned up Eoin. I'm actually getting this kit today (in it's Minicraft boxing) from a mate that's selling his stash. Along with some other stuff so I'm interested to see how it goes together. Bit of work by the looks, but you're doing the business.
Keep up the good work. [smile]

Have to admire the way you have dealt with each fit problem as they appear Eoin, and dealing with being a daddy.

They say Man Flu is the worse flu around, i disagree....daughters think the world is going to end and demand even more sympathy!, particulary from their dads.

Great build, looking forward to seeing this one with paint on it.

Right, and they say men can't multitask. You prove them wrong Eoin - full time daddy and mastering serious fitting issues the same time, no problem sir, lol

Thanks lads, This build has been put on hold until after my clubs show which is on Saturday, I had planned on putting this into it but the problems are just mounting and so I had to have a break from it. So its been replaced by the Italeri Short Sunderland MK.I which thankfully is going well.

The last job I did on the Liberator was to try and fix a Major problem, Check out the fit of the glass nose[frown][mad][mad]


So I had to pop the seam join and try out some styrene strip, yes the dome is gonna be effected but I had to do something




I filled it with Zap-a-Gap and just put it to the side for a few days, as I said il get back to it in a few days

Check out the size comparison to the Sunderland


Thanks for looking 
Eoin

Ouch ! The fit in the nose glazing is nasty, but it looks like you have got it sorted, I can't think of any other way you could have got things to line up. It shouldn't be too bad to sort out the dome, maybe glue a bit of styrene sheet over the old opening with the hole in cut to the size of the dome ?

That Sunderland is a beast too lol
